Should we need to repeat on the pronoun after the word "because"?

For example:

"This bone is also called the “tail” because (it is / is) in the end of the body"


Yes, the pronoun needs to be repeated because it is part of a clause, which means that there needs to be a subject. The pronoun would only be omitted if it were part of a compound verb in one clause, such as "The bone is also called the 'tail' and is in the end of the body."
