• Welcome to TeX.SE! It's usually nice to provide at least a starting code so answerers don't need to start from scratch. If you know how to typeset the nodes (the rectangles), then please provide at least that. :) Jun 21 '16 at 17:12
• This is more or less what smartdiagram does by default. All you need is \usepackage{smartdiagram} in the preamble and then \smartdiagram[circular diagram]{Blah, Blah, Blah} in the body. Jun 21 '16 at 17:57

A PSTricks solution:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pstricks}

\begin{document}

\begin{pspicture}(7,6)
\psset{
dimen = m,
fillstyle = solid,
fillcolor = blue!60,
framearc = 0.2
}
\pspolygon(0.7,1.5)(2.8,4.5)(3.4,4.5)(1.3,1.5)
\pspolygon(6.3,1.5)(5.7,1.5)(3.6,4.5)(4.2,4.5)
\pspolygon(2,0.5)(2,1)(5,1)(5,0.5)
\psframe[fillcolor = green!50](0,0)(2,1.5)
\rput(1,0.75){Fish}
\psframe[fillcolor = yellow!50](5,0)(7,1.5)
\rput(6,0.75){Bird}
\psframe[fillcolor = purple!50](2.5,4.5)(4.5,6)
\rput(3.5,5.25){Mammal}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}


Not exactly the image in the question - but pretty close. Their wool needs to be combed out to straighten it a bit, but they're all in the right places. Just in need of a bit of a trim, really.

\documentclass[tikz,border=10pt,multi]{standalone}
\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}
[
defaid/.style={cloud, fill=#1!25, drop shadow, draw, minimum width=65pt, minimum height=50pt, thick, label={[cloud, fill=#1!25, cloud puffs=5, anchor=south west, label distance=7.5pt, drop shadow, inner sep=10pt, draw, thick]180:{}}, label={[text centered, ellipse callout, drop shadow, anchor=south east, fill=white, draw, yshift=5pt, font=\sffamily\bfseries]160:Baa}},
coes/.style={line cap=round, line width=2.5pt, draw},
]
\node (d1) [defaid=orange!50!yellow] {};
\node (d2) [defaid=red] at (-60:3) {};
\node (d3) [defaid=green!50!black] at (-120:3) {};
\scoped[on background layer]{%
\draw [line width=1pt, double=blue!75!black, double distance=5pt] (0,0) -- (240:3) -- (300:3) -- cycle ;
\foreach \i in {1,...,3}
\draw [coes] (d\i.-100) ++(-2.5pt,-10pt) -- ++(2.5pt,20pt) -- ++(1.5pt,-20pt) (d\i.-80) ++(2.5pt,-10pt) -- ++(-2.5pt,20pt) -- ++(-1.5pt,-20pt);
}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

• @Alenanno Bla bla bla -> Baa, baa, baa. Admittedly, they should really be black but you've got to allow a little artistic licence now and again. Also, look closely at the image in this question. Coincidence? Baa!
