       Francelle, you HAVE seen lycopene and carotene if you have
ever seen tomatoes and carrots.  The latin name for tomato is
Lycopersicon esculentum, so you can see the origin of the word
"lycopene" (this pigment is also the red of watermelon and grapefruit).  As 
for carotene, I think you've already figured
that out.
