That size shouldn't really have any inherent issues. The tail seems to have some problems due to the overhang/angle, and it looks like you may have been trying to print with no infill, which would seem to account for the flaws on top.

Otherwise, the layer heights look a little big. Consider printing around 0.2mm layers, with 30% infill.
