2016 #AtoZChallenge - Castle!

For those who are here for the first time, this is an interactive fiction adventure. I will write a scene every day, and my visitors will vote for where they want the story to go next, by leaving a comment on the post. You can start from the beginning here.

"The castle! A formidable shelter, despite damage from a midnight catastrophe!" Andy pulled the castle across the floor into the middle of his room. He reset a couple scenes within the castle's rooms, and replaced a little plastic flag on top of one of the turrets. The flag had a green and blue sticker on it that had started to peel up at the edges a bit. He scattered blocks near the broken portion of the wall, giving an impression of recent destruction. As a final touch, Andy drew the drawbridge, to prepare for battle.
"I've decided, troops! We're going to battle the furry creatures vs the reptiles. Assemble your ranks, and we'll pick sides next." He separated the plastic toys into two groups. Dinosaurs, snakes and iguanas here - dogs, monkeys, and horses over there. He put a couple birds with each group. Gorilla, of course, went with his furry fellows. "Are you happy Gorilla? We're almost ready to fight! Now, who will defend the castle, and who will attack?"

Which band of creatures will defend the castle?
Dinosaurs and other scaly beasts
or the Dogs and the furry creatures?
