Police think bones found on a Taranaki beach by a member of the public are from an animal, but they will be checked by scientists.

Police were called to the find on New Plymouth's Back Beach about 10:10am on Saturday, a police spokeswoman said.

"We believe they're animal and they're not being treated as suspicious," she said.

But they will be sent to a pathologist.
