No, that's not possible.

Consider these facts:

-- all three angles of any triangle always add up to 180 degrees

-- all three angles in an equilateral triangle have to be the same size

-- a right triangle has a right angle in it; a right angle is 90 degrees

An equilateral right triangle would need three right angles in it, and they would

add up to 270 degrees. As we said earlier: Impossible.
