By a 2:1 margin, the Dinosaurs had it yesterday!

"Dinosaurs, you'll defend your position against these hairy beasts!" He placed the dinosaur creatures inside the castle. Brontosaurus took up most of the courtyard, but the pterodactyls fit nicely up on the castle's walls. T-rex started near the castle gate, and the smaller creatures took up their positions looking out windows and arrowslits.
"Gorilla, muster your troops out on the carpet and make your plan of attack. You have to get in to get.. umm.."

But what are the dinosaurs protecting within the castle?
Enormous jewels,
The quEEn of the furry creatures,
or Enough food for a year?
