I think you can draw two of them. As you walk around the triangle in the clockwise direction, you can run into the sides in the order of                  3  ==>  4  ==>  1 or in the order of                  3  ==>  1  ==>  4 . Those are mirror images of each other.  So they're not congruent, and I think they're considered different triangles.
