      Because it so cold and so dry that hardly any plants can live there. This means that hardly any animals can live there (although there are some penguins which live on the fish). Actually, some scientists do live there in a research station, but they have to bring all their supplies with them by boat. It must get pretty lonely for them I reckon.
