No. It is a semi-regular polyhedron. Explanation. The truncated icosahedron is a polyhedron that can be constructed from an icosahedron with the 12 vertices truncated (cut off) such that one third of each edge is cut off at each of both ends. This creates 12 new pentagon faces, and leaves the original 20 triangle faces as regular hexagons A regular polyhedron is a polyhedron whose faces are congruent regular polygons. The truncated icosahedron is NOT a regular polyhedron, it is a semiregular polyhedron. It is a uniform polyhedron.
